GOTS Certified Organic. Ethically Made. A Traceable Supply Chain. It's very Kippiny. Kippens believe that their brand is responsible for the way our products are produced and the impact they have on the little ones who have them in their homes. When you buy a Kippins product, you can be confident that it is free of harmful chemicals, and that it has been ethically produced. The standard methods used to grow cotton make it one of the most environmentally damaging crops on the earth. Cotton crops require huge amounts of water and they are often farmed using toxic pesticides that remain in the fibres and which leak into the surrounding environment. Their organic cotton is grown using natural, pesticide free farming methods and their water-based dyes are gentle on new skin. It’s the way nature intended. They also believe that every member of our supply chain deserves fair wages, a safe place to work and standard working hours. We like to remember that all sewn products are handmade somewhere. Real hearts and hands that make our products with love. To support our philosophy, authentic Kippins products carry the GOTS logo. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the leading worldwide textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire supply chain. To promote your products as GOTS certified, every member of your supply chain, from the farmer who plants the organic crop, to the manufacturer who assembles the pieces, must be independently assessed by GOTS.
